To date, 70,590 people, including 17,648 women of reproductive age, have been displaced from North-East Syria to Al-Hassakeh, Ar-Raqqa and Aleppo governorates. Displaced people have, in the majority, found shelter in local communities but also in informal settlements and collective shelters.

In recent weeks, three new informal diplacement settlements have been established: Tweineh (hosting an estimated 4,120 people), Tal-Samen (estimated 20 people) and Daham (estimated 1,800 people).

There are 77 shelters in Al-Hassakeh Governorate. An estimated 129,041 displaced people are reported to have returned to their places of origin. Of these, 118,936 have returned to Al-Hassakeh and Ar-Raqqa, including: 18,200 to Qamishli, 7,625 to Tal Tamer, 8,425 to Al-Malikeyyeh, 42,869 to Ras Al Ain and 41,817 to Tal Abyad in Ar-Raqqa. In Aleppo, 10,105 have returned, mainly to Menbij.

With the continued drastic drops in temperatures, women and girls are adversely affected by the cold weather and dire needs for non-food items (NFIs) that will protect them from the weather continue to persist.
